Outlook® Integration

SmartLink™  connects you to the tool you use most – email. You can easily add documents, create and edit matters, and manage invoices directly from your email inbox without sacrificing the functionality and security of Ascent ELM to further streamline your life.

Advanced System Configuration

Flex-System personalizes Ascent ELM to your unique processes and workflows without the expense of software customization.  Out-of-the-box ELM solutions don’t offer the configuration flexibility that you get with Ascent ELM’s tools or expert help.

Alternative Fee Arrangements

AFA Wizard ensures your AFAs are limited only by your creativity, not your ELM software.  You can easily create and manage “value-based billing” scenarios from within Ascent ELM without support.  Transparently collaborate with outside counsel to track legal spend relative to budget.
